DANIEL SHEETS DYE WROTE THE DEFINITIVE TEXT ON CHINESE LATTICE DESIGNS.





"Chinese craft design excelled in the manipulation of geometeric space and reached its highest point in the design of window lattices on Chinese houses....generally neglected as an art form...this book is the first work on the sugject since the 17th century."




"Professor Dye spent over 21 years studying and copying lattices all over China...this collection can probably never be duplicated."





Balanced, intricate, sometimes asymemetrical, harmonius...
